- Full Description
Originally released in late-2015 in a limited edition of only 1000 copies, The Art of Dean Cornwell sold out very quickly. If you missed out on the first printing, you may have seen them selling for big bucks in the after-market. A rare event from this publisher, we now have a second, nearly identical edition. This spectacular book explores the life and work of the "Dean of Illustrators." FULL COLOR throughout and entirely new. It's filled with beautiful illustrations reproduced almost exclusively from the original paintings and drawings.
The book is 224 pages long (the same size as the bestselling Masterworks Golden Age series), from the same publisher, Illustrated Press, who publishes Illustration Magazine. Daniel is the editor of Illustration.
This also includes a checklist of Cornwell's magazine and book illustrations, 1914 to 1952; murals; projects not completed; and advertising clients, from Coca-Cola and Goodyear to Seagram's and Johnny Walker! He was a prolific contributor to The Saturday Evening Post. Also, there's a long section featuring never-before-collected studies and preliminary drawings and paintings.
This is very exciting, the first new book on Dean Cornwell since the one-and-only book on him was published in 1978 (it was reprinted in 2000--and THAT edition is now long sold out). Both books command premium prices in the book trade--the 1978 edition topped out near $1000 a copy before it was finally reprinted. Today, even the reprints start around $150.
Cornwell rose above his contemporaries throughout a long career. He was tremendously influential on subsequent generations of artists, even to today. He illustrated works by many of the best authors of his day, as well as top flight advertising pieces.
PLEASE NOTE: This second printing is identical to the first edition, apart from a few changes to the improve the color reproductions. The publisher worked to make some of the images a little bit better in this new printing, but there are no additional artworks included.
